Piefe Up 



THE OBJECTIVE 

You want to date the girl of your dreams. Unfortunately, you 
hold this girt with so much esteem that she is high up on a 
pedestal and you have to get her down. You can do this by 
wooing her and winning her heart with the right presents. If you 
succeed, you'll score in a big way at the love-nest hotel. But be 
careful! If you mess up too many times she'll lose her patience 
with you and leave!

indicated in your manufacturer's owner manual- Turn the 
power switch OFF and insert the Pick Up cartridge.

THE CONTROLS 

You control the boy (or girl if the TV Type Switch is set to B+W) 
as he attempts to get presents to win his girl's heart. Pressing 
the joystick to the left will move the boy to the left. Pressing the 
joystick to the right will move the boy to the right. Pressing the 
joystick button will fire a projectile into the sky to hit a present. 
You can steer the projectile left and right by moving the joystick 
left or right. 

THE GAME 

Chances 

You begin each level with 5 chances to hit presents with your 
projectile. If you hit a present, it will appear at the bottom of the 
screen. If you mistakenly hit a present that you already caught, 
you will lose one chance and that present will disappear from 
the bottom of the screen. You will then have to hit the present 
again. If you lose all of your chances, the girl will get tired of 
waiting. She'll jump off her pedestal and dash off the screen. At 
that point you will sink into the ground from embarrassment.

Presents 

There are six presents, Wine Glass, Car, Money, Perfume, 
Heart, and Flower, moving back and forth (and up and down in 
higher levels) around the top of the screen. You must hit all six 
presents with a projectile before the girl will come down from 
her pedestal Each present that you hit will appear at the bottom 
of the screen. However, if you hit a present that you already 
have, you will lose it along with one of your chances. If you take 
too long hitting a present, one will begin flashing for a brief time. 
If you don't hit it while it is flashing, you will lose a chance. 

Love N est Hotel 

If you are lucky enough to acquire all 6 presents, your date will 
step off of her pedestal. She will then collect her presents as the 
two of you walk to the Love Nest Hotel. There, the curtains are 
lowered so you can really score! 

Scoring 

Points are scored based on the level that you are on. If you are 
on the second level, these points are doubled. If you are on the 
third level, these points are tripled.
